Two weeks ago I asked a question whether to use the hyphen or the en dash in cases like Anglo-Saxon England and The Washington–Moscow hotline on https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/.

Whether to choose the hyphen or the en dash in cases like "Anglo-Saxon England" or "The Washington-Moscow hotline"?

I had wrongly supposed that this question is related to typography but thanks to Billy Kerr who answered it, it is now obvious that it is actually about English.

May I ask to move it to https://english.stackexchange.com/? I think it would a better place for it.

You are correct in that the question is more about the use of English language in general and less about typography. It would be a better fit on English.SE.

However, we typically do not migrate questions once they have received answers. This is for a variety of reasons. The main reason here would be because it would cause Billy to lose their rep for the upvotes on their answer.

From this Meta.SE Q&A:

Avoid migrating answered questions. The point of migration is to send the question to a place where it is on-topic and can get answered. If the OP already has an answer, then we've already defeated the purpose of migration and the destination site won't have anything to do with the question. Avoid migrating these questions unless they are of extremely good quality and risk deletion on their current site.
